Road to STGCC 2011 Rev-Up: Secrets of the Con
Two days more to go till this year’s Singapore Toy, Game and Comic Convention (STGCC) and if you haven’t already, catch up with our toy, game and comic reports to find out just what to expect this weekend.
So what’s left to say about the event that hasn’t already been covered? Quite a fair bit, apparently.
Firstly, we got a head’s up from ToysEtc to check out Lucifer’s Ladies, a collaborative effort between Malaysian-born artist Ong Eng Keat aka Keatopia and Singaporean sculptor Adeeb Md Mynul Islam aka HairyAsHell. The concept series, featuring a demon girl and an angel girl, will be exclusively unveiled at STGCC, along with the prototype sculpture of the former. The complete artwork by Keatopia will be on sale, and you can also pick up this free postcard (pictured below) when you drop by their booth G28 and check out a sculpting demo of the angel girl!
Next, from ToyHaven, we got a look at another STGCC exclusive, this time from U-Toys at Booth E18! Looking straight out of World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles, this 1/6 scale USMC 2nd MEB (Marine Expeditionary Brigade) 12-inch military figure from Soldier Story cuts an imposing… well, pose as he intimidates the hell out of anyone who dares to stand in his way, be it rogue Taliban forces or dastardly invading aliens. The figure will be sold only at STGCC, so make sure you get yours!
We also have a sneak shout out from RedDotDiva who tells us that guest artist Mico Suayan will be doing a live art demo at the Elseworlds booth E22! Though the exact time and date have yet to be revealed, you can head over to her Facebook page and add your suggestions as to what character he should draw during the demo! So far the suggestions are as diverse as Ghost Rider, Witchblade and Nightwing! Me? I just loved his take on Moon Knight, something I discovered only recently.
Finally, a little surprise of our own! I won’t give too much away at this stage, but here’s a little riddle to keep you clue-d in. Watch this space for more details!
My first is in secret but never in spy
My second in cheat but thief she’ll deny.
My third is in arrest but not escape
My fourth may be amazed but never agape
My fifth is in bedevil and also in VILE
My last is in woman, but alas! not in wile.
A good gumshoe will know where and when to get clues,
Find my whole and Rockapella will sing away the blues.
Who am I?
